Fails to account for relevant variables

Posted by cpikas on 17 Dec 2010 at 01:07 GMT

This study has an interesting approach, but is not well done. First, none of the relevant literature is cited. Second, PubMed has cover to cover indexing of Science and Nature (among other journals). It is well known that disciplinary area is very important when looking at citedness. This study fails to account for discipline area.
